Good Food, Slow service

The family that we visited the wine exchange with showed up at the restaurant about 15 minutes prior to us and were told we had a 30 minute wait for first available seating. We arrived and about an hour later we were finally seated, no apologies, nothing. Once we were finally seated the overall... read more

We just stopped in for drinks. They have a nice vibrant bar area. Only issue is that they cram way too many bar stools around the bar that makes it way too crowed and difficult to get off your stool for a bathroom break. Service was just okay. The bartender was professional and attentive but not outwardly friendly or inviting.... More

While visiting Hyde Park Village we ran into a wine and lunch stop. I have to say this is a must go to place if you are in the area. Many choices of wine but the food was fantastic. For sure not the normal burger and fries stop.

9 ladies went there to celebrate birthdays. The table was ready for us, the waiter was very nice, very patient for us as a group and he split our bills without tacking on an automatic tip for this being a group. We brought a cake with us and the staff provided the plates and forks without being asked. The food... More

My husband and I stopped in for lunch during a "Christmas gift return" shopping day. We have dined here many times, all but once for lunch, and always on the patio where they have large heaters to keep the cold away! The appetizers and salads are very yummy and just right for an afternoon meal. Their wine list is a... More

Got seated immediately and waited on just as fast. Very friendly and everything they brought out was excellent. Definitely the right place to go.

The Wine Exchange just should be better. My wife and I really try to like this place every time we go (and I have been going since it's old location next to the movie theater).....but it is just average. The wine list is not that special, the food is okay, and the service is usually average at best. Hyde Park... More

Had lunch at The Wine Exchange with several girlfriends. I had never been there before. Everything on the menu looked wonderful. All five of us ordered different things and everyone enjoyed their lunch. Can't wait for an excuse to go again.

Recently, I took out-of-town company to The Wine Exchange to experience great food in a relaxed setting, and that we did. Starting off with martinis and one of their special wines, we shared the "Baked Brie" as an appetizer which was exceptional. And their home-made bread served between the appetizer and entree was out of this world -- crusty, moist,... More

The menu is full of great choices and I had a hard time deciding, our waiter recommended the Blackened chicken entree. It was delicious, no doubt one of the best meals I have ever had. Along with a nice bottle of wine and a beautiful woman, turned out to be a great Sunday afternoon.
